For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
-This scripture is taught to us during infancy and is foundational for every Christian. Through the love of God we have received the Son of light; our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; that we may believe in Him and be saved. God is love and has shared His love with the world; that we may receive His grace and salvation unto eternal life with Him.
The bedrock of Christianity is our faith in Christ Jesus. Believing that Christ died for our sins that we may receive eternal life. It is through the grace of God that we have been saved and not by our works lest anyone should boast, for no one can come to Christ unless the Father draws them and He will raise us up on the last day (Jn 6:44). We believe in the Holy Trinity one God; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. And anyone who loves God is called to obey His teachings and the Father will love him and the Holy Trinity will come to him and make a home with him (Jn 14:23). Some people and religions do not believe in Jesus Christ but believe the teachings of Moses. Addressing the Jewish leaders, Jesus said to them “if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me” (Jn 5:46). Jesus calls everyone to believe in Him for no one comes to the Father but by Him. Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes (Rom 10:4). And he who believes in Jesus is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (Jn 3:18 ). For everyone who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him (Jn 3:36). Jesus calls us to repentance and to believe in the gospel and the Holy Spirit will help us, confort us, intercede for us and abide in us until the last day.
Oh Holy Spirit; jolt us with Your love and bring us to faith in Jesus Christ that we may inherit eternal life. Renew our first love with You Jesus and enable us to love our neighbours as ourselves. In humility we ask You Holy Trinity one God; to come into our hearts and make a home with us. Our Father Who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from all evil, for thine is the kingdom the power and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen
